Great views, great pool and close to all of Golden Bay - very centrally located in one of the sunniest parts of the bay. Close to sea swimming, biking, cafes and artisans of all types. Quiet and very relaxing.

A wonderful spot and well-run. Lots of extras included that you normally have to pay extra for! This is a small family run business that provides more than the usual. Heated salt water pool - excellent. See the stars from the hot tub late at night before turning in to sleep soundly in the quiet location. Wake up to bird...

Ideal place to spend a night during a roadtrip trough New-Zealand. Recommend arrival before sunset, chalets situated off-road. Owners can be reached through intercom, small problem immediately solved. Laundry facilities available free of charge. Wifi OK. Jacuzzi and pool available Curtains in bedroom a bit dusty.

This is a lovely place to stay, one of the nicest we have ever stayed in, and one that we have now finished our second stay at. The owners are really friendly and helpful and are always on hand when needed. There are plenty of amenities - wifi, tea and coffee, linens - and luxuries - hot tub, indoor pool...

Only stayed a night as just passing through. Chalets are a few kms inland from Mapua, not really walking distance from the village. As they are up a hill the views are amazing of the sea and the lights of Nelson. Each chalet is separate and reasonably private. Very clean and you are able to be self sufficient, even got...

Visited here last night with our two small children. They LOVED it and so did we. Amazing pools ( one indoor , one outdoor ) plus a spa, lovely clean chalet with WiFi, and an awesome view. The owner Andy was super friendly and helpful too. Wish we could have stayed longer, we will definitely be back. Best accommodation in...

The location is lovely, so peaceful and beautiful. The local village is very sweet with everything you need and some really good cafes and restaurants. Handy location for getting to Abel Tasman etc. The pool redeemed this place, without it I think we would've left early. Was perfect temperature, most days we were the only ones using it which was...

Hi Michelle, Thanks for your review and for coming to stay with us. You were lovely people and we enjoyed chatting to you. We are pleased you enjoyed the pool and the chalet accommodation.
